A Toronto-based anti-LGBTQ2+ “street preacher” was met with counter protesters during a stop in Vancouver Monday (Aug. 31), as part of his cross-country tour.
David Lynn could be seen standing behind a wall of police officers as members of the gay community and allies turned up in downtown Vancouver to protest Lynn’s stop in the city.
Lynn, who was in Victoria over the weekend for a similar event, walked through the downtown core as he headed to the waters of False Creek where he performed baptisms with his small group of supporters.
Dozens of counter protesters could be seen surrounding Lynn and police officers.
Lynn is the founder of Christian Forgiveness Ministries, a non-denominational Christian ministry.
In August, a Vancouver man since identified as Sportsnet 650 host Justin Morissette ended up with a broken leg after he confronted other anti-gay street preachers on Davie Street.
